Memorial Day is a day set aside to honor and remember the brave men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. This solemn holiday has its origins in the aftermath of the Civil War, when communities began to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers as a way of paying tribute to their sacrifice.

At Unity Escape Rooms, we want to take this time to reflect on the sacrifices these men and women made, so that we may enjoy the freedoms of this great nation.

"As we contemplate the comforts and blessings of our lives and the well-being of our nation, I ask you to pause just for a moment to remember those who gave their lives to protect the values that give meaning to our lives."
- Bill Clinton

We hope you will join us in showing respect and appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who have died while serving in the military.
